Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts may complete requirements in a family, den, pack, school, or community environment. Tiger Cubs must work with their parents or adult partners. Parents and partners do not earn loops or pins.

Requirements for the Physical Fitness Belt Loop

Complete these three requirements:

  1. Give a short report to your den or family on the dangers of drugs and alcohol.
  2. Practice finding your pulse and counting your heartbeats per minute. Determine your target heart rate.
  3. Practice five physical fitness skills regularly. Improve performance in each skill over a month. Skills could include pull-ups, sit-ups, the standing long jump, the 50-yard dash, and the softball throw.

Requirements for the Physical Fitness Pin

Earn the Physical Fitness belt loop, and complete five of the following requirements:
  1. Choose a form of exercise, bring your heart rate up to target, and keep it there for 15 minutes. Remember to warm up and cool down slowly.
  2. Set up a four-step exercise program. Chart your progress for five days a week for two weeks.
  3. Explain the reason for warming up and cooling down before and after each exercise session.
  4. Visit a local gym and talk to a trainer about exercises and programs for young people.
  5. Participate in some aerobic exercises at least three times a week for four weeks.
